Further and Higher Education

Many students have left the Art Department at Wymondham High Academy and progressed to further and higher education in art related subjects at prestigious art institutions such as Central St. Martins (UAL) and UCL for Architecture. Students have also progressed to degree courses at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Wimbledon, Bournemouth College of Art, Leeds College of Art, Loughborough College of Art, Falmouth College of Art and more locally, Norwich University of the Arts, to name but a few.

Over the 2 years at A Level, students generate a large and substantial body of quality work which will support a portfolio of work in preparation for face to face and remote interviews for foundation courses, BA (Hons) and future MA courses in art related subjects at Art Colleges across the country.
